So, what you could do is enable the Dvorak layout in the International preferences, bring up the Key caps panel as a guide, pick up a US layout keyboard, get out a little screwdriver or paddle and get to prying (gently).
Oh come on, 26 letters plus a few stragglers, you'd be done in a few minutes! If you want too much work, try to learn the Dvorak layout without rearranging the keycaps.dmw007 said:Sounds like too much work for me....plus I would be sure to mix the keys up.
So then how would you know that it's a terrible idea?amphibious said:Popping off the keys and moving them around is a terrible idea... I'm not sure about Apple keyboards
Okay, then you simply haven't seen one and are making it up as you go along. On the current Apple keyboards under discussion, the switch bases are angled, and the keycaps do not differ by row.(I prefer my old Keytronic Designer), but most keyboards' keys have different angles depending on what row they are on.
I did it with my Apple Pro Keyboard and iBook a few years back. Worked fine, no issues at all. (Aside from the fact that you lose your Num-Pad lettering on the iBook.) Took me all of about 10 minutes on each keyboard to do. Just pop all the keys off, have a Dvorak diagram printed out or on screen and go to town.
